Chasing away the winter blues!

Author Phyllida Shrimpton

Literary Festival welcomes Essex authors

Six Essex-based authors are to take part in Brightlingsea Literary Festival’s Meet the Authors event being held at the Colne Yacht Club in Brightlingsea on Sunday March 3.

The authors, including popular novelist Phyllida Shrimpton, who is from Brightlingsea, will be reading extracts from their work and will meet and chat to audience members, as well as selling books at the free event, which starts at 4pm.

Joining Phyllida will be authors T G Trouper, David Evans, Mark Butterworth, Ivan Sage and Kate Baker. There will also be representatives from local writing groups and publishers.

Ruth Loten from Brightlingsea’s BrightWords Creative writing Group, which has organised the Literary Festival said: “We are delighted that we are welcoming six very talented authors whose work covers a wide range of genres, so there will be something for everyone. It will be fascinating to hear them read and talk about their books.”

The BrightWords Creative Writing Group launched the first ever Brightlingsea Literary Festival last year and linked with Brightlingsea WinterFest again this year.
